Our instructors are professionals with years of experience treating these types of injuries on city streets and the battlefield. Our special course was more than 2 years in the making, with the curriculum developed by Rick Hammesfahr, M.D., past chairman of the Curriculum and Examination Board (CEB) for the United States Special Operations Command. Under his guidance, the CEB developed Tactical Medical Emergency protocols and techniques currently being used on the battlefield today.
